Geoffrey Megargee, an applied research scholar at the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, is the author of several books, including Inside Hitler’s High Command. He was interviewed in the BookTV studio.
Geoffrey Megargee, editor of the Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos, 1933-1945, was interviewed about the Nazi’s system of camps and ghettos in Germany and allied or satellite states. He talked about the research done by his team and the identification of more than 20,000 such sites, several times more than anticipated at the project’s outset. Mr. Megargee also talked about the release of the fist volume, The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos, 1933-1945, Volume 1 (Indiana University Press; June 2009), after ten years of research. When complete, the full seven-volume series would provide the first comprehensive survey of all known Nazi camps and ghettos. He listed the contents of the various volumes, due to be released every two years until 2018.
